Wedding dresses for brides over 50 are found online from sites such as Flattering50, Perfect-wedding-dress-finder.com and Shirley's Dress. Dresses for older brides should flatter, with an emphasis on both look and comfort.
Dresses by Flattering50 emphasize simplicity and focus on five elements: structure, fabric, neckline, sleeves and hemline. For structure, choose a dress that flatters the bride's body shape. Fabrics like lace, satin, silk and chiffon are popular. A not-too-low neckline is age-appropriate and a wrap or faux wrap draws attention away from the waist and stomach and on to the neck and shoulders. Three-fourth length sleeves are flattering, and a waltz-length dress or even a hemline just above the knees gives the illusion of height.
